edk2: Change License.txt from 2-Clause BSD to BSD+Patent

Change License.txt in the root of the edk2 repository from the
2-Clause BSD License to the BSD+Patent License.

The text difference between these licenses in the patch is larger
than expected due to different choices for the position of the line
breaks.  The text from the BSD 2-Clause license and its disclaimer
are the same.  New clauses from the BSD+Patent license have been
added.
